For a change, Don takes the audience to the home of Bob Crosby where he talks with his wife about an upcoming appearance. Bob has been away so much lately that his own kids don’t recognize him. They plan a dinner party at home, and Bob phones to invite Jack.
Time to cut to Jack’s house as he comments on Bob, and the doorbell rings. Dennis stops by to ask a favor. He wants to borrow money to get a tattoo so people will believe he was in the Navy. To compare notes, Jack shows off a tattoo that he got when he was in the Navy. Dennis sings, Almost Like Being in Love.
After Dennis leaves, Jack comments about him then Rochester comes in after his grocery shopping. To relax at home, Jack goes to his library to read a book. He reads a poem, The Shooting of Dan McGrue, and his imagination takes him into the story.
Jack is a cowboy in a salloon, and Mel Blanc is the bartender. They are in the frontiers of Alaska, and out of boredom, Jack does some practice shooting to win a bet.
With sponsor related lyrics, the Sportsmen sing, Alouette. Jack plans to head out to find gold, then gets his dog sled ready to face the raging weather. Weeks of facing the wild pass by, and Don spots an eskimo to ask for help.
They continue on to find their gold, then are back in the salloon, spending their riches. An encounter with a gal named Lou gets Jack into trouble with her boyfriend, Dan McGrue. The lights go out, a woman screams, and two bodies lay on the floor as Jack’s day dreaming ends.
